Monday Bird Droppings

The links are late, but they're good!

Sources: Colorado Rockies reach deal with Melvin Mora
"The Rockies believe that he might be energized by a fresh start." You know what? I hope they're right. -Stacey

Official farewell for O's Mora - baltimoresun.com
Dan Connolly gives Melmo a nice goodbye and Melvin says all the nice things. -Stacey

New ... and improved? - baltimoresun.com
MacPhail did what he said he wanted to do this off-season, but how much difference will it really make? Dan Connolly and several national writers decide that if the Orioles improve it will be based on their young players. That's for that breaking insight, fellas. -Stacey

Koji, Berken, and Hernandez
Anyone speak Japanese? If so you can enjoy this video on Koji. It appears to be very nice. The music is very uplifting at any rate, at least until they started playing Love in this Club. Also, Kranitz approves of putting young potential starters in the bullpen. -Stacey

Camden Depot: Connecticut would do good for a bad team.
Camden Depot takes a look at the idea of the Rays moving to another location. -Stacey

Talkin' baseball on WNST
For those of you who missed it, here's the link to the recording. Sorry to those playing the Felix Pie drinking game; if I could do it all again I'd definitely go all Robin Scherbatsky on you. -Stacey

UPDATE: One more that just came out this morning....

Baltimore Orioles need to draft and trade well to contend - Ben Reiter - SI.com
Ben Reiter likes where the O's are headed. -zk

She wants casual... Okay, I'll be casual. I'm gonna be a mushroom cloud of casual. You know why? 'cause it's a game. I wanted to skip to the end and to the Open Thread thing. But you don't get there, unless you play the game.
